The vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, has shed more light on why his boss, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, visited the United States.

Atiku on Thursday announced via his social media pages that he was in Washington DC, an announcement that has continued to generate debate.

But Obi, while fielding questions from journalists at the Domestic Wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, disclosed that Atiku visited America for consultation.

“Though he does over 90% of his consultations at home and among Nigerians, but now and then, he has to travel to meet different groups, especially those that will be of assistance in the new Nigerian project,” Obi said.

The former Anambra State governor said that Atiku was concerned about how to create jobs, reduce unemployment, and abolish poverty as part of efforts to make Nigeria start working again.

“His trip is about engaging partners because he wants to hit the ground running without wasting unnecessary time,” he stated.
